How it works

Volume is a publishing platform for high-quality illustrated books. We host campaigns to fund, produce and sell beautiful printed editions created by the world’s leading artists, designers and as yet undiscovered talents.

Pledging for a Volume publication is easy. Browse our current funding projects here, and select the edition you would like from the Rewards menu. Your pledge will count towards the funding goal required to produce the book.

Funding goals are set by Volume and each book’s creator. The target amount includes a wide range of costs, and costs vary widely from project to project. Depending on the state of the project when it is launched on Volume, these might include editorial, design, prepress, printing and shipping costs. Other expenses might include special photography or picture research. Materials, packaging and printing methods also have a significant bearing on a book’s cost, particularly illustrated editions.

Once a goal is met, publication will proceed and you will receive your chosen edition by the indicated delivery date. Should the goal not be met within the allotted time period, your pledge will be refunded. Backers of our books will receive regular updates throughout the process with news and exclusive behind-the-scenes information.

We will launch new book projects regularly, often with limited-edition rewards which may go quickly. To be notified as new campaigns launch on Volume and to ensure you can support and receive the edition you most want, please sign up to our newsletter
